Jolie Holland

We’ve had Jolie Holland back at The Ark with Samantha Parton and as a guest of The Portland Cello Project, but it’s been awhile since we’ve heard a full solo show from this unique songwriter. Over the span of her career, Jolie Holland has knotted together a century of American song—jazz, blues, soul, rock and roll—into some stew that is impossible to categorize with any conventional critical terminology. In Jolie Holland’s music, the perceived space between ancient and modern seems to fade away. If something speaks to you and is meaningful, dates can become irrelevant. In that sense, Jolie Holland’s work has often been characterized as timeless. Her voice sounds like it came out of a dusty East Texas cotton field. But the lyrics of this singer-songwriter conjure characters and situations one might find in the surrealistic celluloid of Jim Jarmusch. It’s no surprise that Tom Waits is Jolie Holland’s biggest fan. Says Time Out London: ” Jolie Holland sings spooky American fairy tales in a strange and beautiful way,” and E! Online called her songwriting “a captivating, bohemian blend of Appalachian folk and ghostly parlor music.” Jolie comes to Michigan with a new album, “Catalpa.”
